What are the pros? When they sweeten

What are the cons? Invasive if not careful


The wild birds where I live at had brought in the Black version of this plant. Where it grows from green to purple to black as it ripens. I have found out over the past two years, That they Only Taste Sweet if they get the Proper Amount Of Water. Without that proper amount of water it will always taste mostly bitter or completely bitter. It is also a 50-50 maturity Rate To Sweetness wherever it grows, so you can literally be picking them on and off for several months, depending on climate. The seeds themselves are normally always 100% sprouting rate. I bet it is the exact same as this orange variety. As all Nightshade edible varieties, or The Nightshade plant in general Grows like a Weed and Spreads like an Invasive Weed. If you are not careful it will become invasive. Recommended to only grow in flower beds or pots if you don't want it to overrun your garden. Can't wait to try this orange variety sometime this year 2019! Would take a lot of berries to make a jam.
